Tonight I went to see Agents del Futuro at Madrone on Fell & Divisadero. As I was walking home I found this bike sitting between trash cans on Fell:
Why would somebody want to throw a perfectly good bike away? Both tires were flat. The handlebars were off-kilter. The handbrake didn't work. I hopped on it and immediately ran it into a trough surrounding a tree. I tried again. I ended up riding it home. The fact that it was so small made my legs burn. When I arrived at my destination, I set it next to some trash cans near my house, so somebody else could get one last ride out of it.
